The winter holidays could be disrupted by opponents of pension reform who plan 'days of action' especially in transport. Here are the dates of the February holidays according to the zones and the academies.
The February holidays could be disrupted by the days of mobilization against the pension reform. If the next strike is scheduled before the winter vacation dates , on January 31, they could continue beyond, in particular in transport, oil refineries, but also in ski resorts. 'As soon as the government stubbornly insists on what causes conflict, there is a possibility of days of action during the School vacation which I believe spans multiple areas and spans at least a month and a half' said on LCI Philippe Martinez, Secretary General of the CGT. Frédéric Souillot, secretary general of Force Ouvrière, intends to go further, if the government does not change its mind, in particular on the retirement age. 'There will certainly be the blockage of the country by the strike' he declared this Monday, January 23 on BFM Business. Government spokesman Olivier Véran reacted to these statements by saying 'no to blocking, no to preventing the French from living properly'. For the time being, for families wishing to go on vacation by train, the SNCF unions are planning, in addition to January 31, a strike notice from Wednesday January 25 to Thursday February 2. But the question of a renewable strike arises.
